A professor of philosophy at the private DePaul University in Chicago has penned an op-ed slamming leftist professors and universities as the “gravest internal threat to this country.”
Professor Jason D. Hill, a Jamaican immigrant and author of the newly released memoir “We Have Overcome: An Immigrant’s Letter to the American People,” wrote an op-ed for The Hill decrying the stifling of free speech and creeping socialism in American colleges.
“The core principles and foundations that keep the United States intact, that provide our citizens with their civic personalities and national identities, are being annihilated,” he wrote. “The gravest internal threat to this country is not illegal aliens; it is leftist professors who are waging a war against America and teaching our young people to hate this country.
“Our universities risk losing their status as learning sites and becoming national security threats,” he wrote. “We need to defund them, disband and rebuild them with conservative principles — that is, values advocating individualism, capitalism, Americanism, free speech, self-reliance and the morality of wealth creation.”
Mr. Hill lamented that students in his classes refuse to study the works of famous philosophers like John Stuart Mill or John Locke because they are white men.
